Re: Thinking about buying a mig-welder...
Don't learn the hard way like I did, back when I was young and dumb (I'm not young anymore) I was welding under a truck on a trailer hitch without glooves on. Since I am left handed guess where a blobs of slag fell, right on my ring. I probably looked stupid running around looking for water to put my hand in.
